For over 30 years Festival Eritrea has served as a venue for introducing Eritrean culture, history, food, and sports to the global community. The first Festival Eritrea began in Italy in the 1980s, before Eritrean independence, and it has continued since, to celebrate the Eritrean identity. This year’s theme of “Unity in Diversity” focuses on the tremendous cultural diversity of the Eritrean population (nine ethno-linguistic groups) and how they have forged a common, unified, identity.
This year’s Festival Eritrea will be held in the Northern California Bay Area from August 9th – 11th, 2019. Sample Eritrean cuisine, music, and dance by renowned musicians!
Come Taste + See + Smell + Hear … Eritrea!
